Thanks for visiting my website/blog. I am a landscape and nature (with a particular interest in birds) artist whose primary medium is oil. Additionally, I work in watercolor and soft pastels, and do a lot of nature and journal sketching in various other media including graphite, gouache and pen and wash. Paintings seen here are generally available for sale - please contact me through this site for information.
In October of 2011, I started a 'daily painting' routine, the goal of which is to paint one small (usually 6 x 8 inch) painting per day (mostly in oils) whenever possible. The blog which includes all those paintings can be found at - http://johntubbs.typepad.com/100_daily_paintings. Although the title says 100, I hope to produce over 300 in the next year.
Categories of posts and images are listed on the right hand side of this page - if you click on any of those categories, only those posts related to that topic will be brought up on the screen, newest post first.
I just started painting (or doing any visual art at all except photography) in March of 2008, so still have a ton to learn. However, I have essentially made painting my focus in life at this point, so have been coming up the learning curve reasonably quickly. (I hope!)
Thanks again for visiting!
